Maybe you or your Valentine enjoy cooking? Bring them some fresh Rosemary for their Herb Garden. Rosemary has long been included in wedding bouquets as a symbol for fidelity. It's said that if you touch a lover with a sprig of rosemary, they'll be faithful.
Lavender is another great herb to give your Valentine. Lavender is thought to promote passion, romance, harmony, friendship, and cooperation with a lover.
